It happened people. It took me a long time and a tonne of edits, but it finally happened. I completed Seas of Vengeance and have officially submitted to a small selection of publishers and agents. When something takes as long as this has you often find yourself wondering if the day will ever actually arrive. … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 19 (The Hard Work Begins)
It finally happened. After a long, long time of waiting, I recently started my new job. It’s great to finally be back in work after my longest ever stint of unemployment. Having to watch the pennies like a hawk had become somewhat tedious. I’m just over a week into the job and it’s just been … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 16 (Work-Life Balance)
First of all, apologies for my break in posting lately. I've been busy combining playing Assassin's Creed 2 on PS4 and Football Manager on my laptop. It's not easy to do both at the same time but I've been managing it. Oh, I've also been working on editing A Survivor's Apocalypse Story to release as … Continue reading A Survivor’s Apocalypse Story now available as an eBook!
In recent times I’ve been postulating over what it is people are generally looking for in a blog. When you get the urge to read what somebody has posted, are you looking for something in particular or is it more to do with the person who wrote it?

My structured style of posting has gone totally skew-whiff. I’ve done this on purpose in part as the rigmarole of coming up with themes for certain things was becoming somewhat tedious. I’ve decided to relax on that front and basically post what I want and when I feel like it. I’d like to apologise to … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 7 (Blogging)
Any Red Dwarf fans amongst you may notice the subject of this post is the title of an episode from series one. I felt it was an apt title. I touched on confidence as being intermittently linked with motivation in Living the Dream Part 3. It’s true; I think the pair go hand in hand. … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 6 (Confidence & Paranoia)
Welcome to the fifth instalment of the series that takes a deeper look into my story writing and reading ventures past, present and future. I had actually intended to do this one as part four, but decided to run with editing for that one instead. I think it’s a fairly obvious thing to say that … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 5 (Locations)
Welcome to the second instalment of Living the Dream; the blog series that focusses on my writing. Today I’m going to take a look at something that has always simultaneously been a pleasure and a pain. Whenever I write a story I always feel some kind of connection to the characters I create.
